Wire in cake??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am getting ready to do a Angry Birds cake and want one of the Birds to actually "fly" off the slingshot.  I've never used wire before in a cake and am unsure of what gauge would be recommended for such a project---thanks for any advice!

I'm sure there's something about size. Lots about food safety.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Thanks for the Links--I had found most of them before asking my question.  All the links were very informative as to how to put the wires in,  but I need to know what gauge would hold a small Angry Bird.  Some people mentioned between an 18-22 gauge-however most only held a few decorative pieces or a small ball.

18 g should be fine. Especially if you use stainless steel wire.
